A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to outreach and education regarding public art opportunities

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subdivision d of section 224 of the New York city charter, as amended by local law number 52 for the year 2015, is amended to read as follows:

d. 1. The department of cultural affairs shall engage in outreach and education efforts regarding the opportunity to submit works of art for consideration for inclusion in capital projects as provided for by this section. Such outreach and education efforts shall include but not be limited to information sessions in each borough that shall be open to the public and the development of written materials that describe the submission and selection process for works of art. The department shall make such written materials available in a manner deemed appropriate by the department, including but not limited to making such materials available to arts and cultural organizations, community-based organizations, and colleges and universities. Such written materials shall be made available in English and in the six languages most commonly spoken by limited English proficient individuals in the city as determined by the department of city planning.  

2.  Reasonable advance notification of the intention to include works of art in a project shall be provided to the appropriate council member, borough president and chairperson of the community board of the community district in which the project is located. Reasonable advance notification of the intention to include works of art in a project shall also be posted on the website of the department of cultural affairs. Following notification of the intention to include works of art in any project, the department of cultural affairs shall hold or present at a public meeting, such as a meeting of the community board of the community district in which the project is located, on such works of art prior to such inclusion. A notice of such public meeting shall be posted on the website of the department of cultural affairs not less than fourteen days prior to any such meeting. All such works of art shall be subject to the approval of the art commission pursuant to section eight hundred fifty-four of this charter.

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately.
